Can anyone suggest brands or designers that have a 19th century workwear vibe ?
(I wouldnt rock those pants, but you get the idea) I know rag & bone used to do stuff along these lines, but not so much anymore.. Any suggestions appreciated

Engineered Garments dogg, get your knicker on. High rises, high buttoning points, rough textures, and plenty of layering seem key.

Those images are fantastic. Try looking at film costume companies every year or so they sell off some units to clear space and I know you can pick up some great pieces which may fit the bill

Those are not pants, they are riding breeches. for work, they were worn with 16 inch high lace up boots. as a kid i had a pair of those boots to the envy of my buddies. didnt have the breeches though.

Rising sun clothing. But I quess this forum is not the best for vintage work wear style. you might want to try some others.
